Gone are the days when networks were simply a way to transfer data from one place to another. While that is still the primary aim of networks in general, a host of other factors -- security, cloud computing, mobility, explosive data growth and increased use of multimedia and collaboration tools --- have rendered even those networks that are relatively modern virtually obsolete. In addition federal networks are facing increased stress from data center consolidation, which requires agencies intelligence and cost- effectiveness of remaining networks. Without infusing today's networks with more intelligence---greater visibility, analytics capabiliti es and improved security, to start---federal networks simply won't be able to keep pace. Instead, they will start experiencing more latency, bottlenecks, security problems, and space issues. According to a recent study from the 1105 Public Sector Media Group, these pressures agency network complexity and capacity requirements. In fact, more than 30% of federal network managers say that their current network management solutions are inadequate and won't be able to support the types of demands their users will be demanding. For most agencies, the solution is to transform their current network infrastructure into one that can handle these demands, creating, in essence, a more intelligent network. The intelligent network will not only be able to handle capacity, throughput and security issues, but full visibility into what's going on and ability to analyze network quick resolution. The main elements of the next-generation intelligent network include: As networks grow and change, existing tools may provide only limited Tools in this category focus on enhancing the visibility and across physical and virtual networks. This technology transforms security control and risk determination into a dynamic process that provides near real-time security status. This is essential for fast response to security threats. Network intelligence tools examine IP data packets, metadata and other network metrics in real time to provide visibility into all network-based activity. With this information, network managers can make fast, impactful decisions. An intelligent network requires directly programmable network control, which allows administrators to adjust networking (SDN) for this purpose.
